Poppy Seed Chicken

Poppy Seed Chicken


"A yummy, creamy chicken casserole which can turn into an elegant dish when the chicken breasts are left whole. For a variation, use boneless chicken breasts, but do not dice them. Pour the soup mixture over all, but sprinkle the cracker and seed combination over the breasts only and bake as usual."

I love this recipe! I leave out the sherry, and instead of pouring the butter on top, I mix it with the cracker/poppyseed mix, then sprinkle on top.

I made this for a couple of friends and they both loved it. I did make a lot of modifications to the recipe based on others suggestions, therefore it only gets 4 stars. I used the French Onion ...

My family now requests this for every gathering. It always turns out perfect, and is easily complimented by a variety of sidedishes. I've used white wine with success when sherry wasn't handy.

Ver easy and delicious. You can use french onion dip in place of the sour cream- it adds more flavor. Also, you can use different soups. Cream of mushroom or celery work well. This is one of...
